|Studio album by Merzbow|
|Released||December 3, 2011|

Lop Lop is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow. The title is a reference to Loplop, a bird-like alter ego of dada and surrealist Max Ernst. The label says that Lop Lop is "a step in a new direction" and that "synths and guitars scream and sing in a way which allows them to be heard through all the oppressive noise".
The album was announced when a short trailer featuring the track "Canaanda" was posted to YouTube "Madoromi" means to doze or nap in Japanese, "Hakutouwashi" means bald eagle. "Sujata & Asoka" are common Indian names.
All music composed by Masami Akita.
